Steakhouses, originally call Chophouses, got their origin in the 1690’s in London. Originally only open for men, they served individual portions of meat – mostly steak – to their patrons
It wasn’t until the mid-nineteenth century that steakhouses started opening in the United States. They were a place for formal dining rather than the traditional bars and inns. The oldest steakhouse that is still open is called Old Homestead Steakhouse which is in New York City and was established in 1868.
I like to look up restaurants in cities and do a sort of review giving their history. Sometimes it is frustrating because so many websites have horrible “About” pages. So, the ones I pick have to have some information about their beginnings’ and their chefs and or owners.
101 Steak is located at 4000 Twin Lakes Drive. They consider this steakhouse a chef-driven one with entrepreneurial men with Brooklyn backgrounds comprising their team. Their menu is seasonal and features Italian, Southern and Asian influences. Their creative side dishes can be ordered with an a la cart seafood or meat choice.
Executive Chef Joe Ahn got his start in his families’ restaurant in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Working with is three brothers, they created a combination of plates with Japanese, Korean and Chinese influences. He got the full restaurant experience by washing dishes, hosting, bartending and waiting tables.
A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, Chef Ahn moved on to work in Italian and Southern kitchens. He joined 101 Steak around 2014 and has been an invaluable addition ever since.
They have many positive reviews online that give them a strong four-point-star review.

Ford Fry, owner of Marcels, wanted to open a steakhouse that was reminiscent of the original steakhouses. He wanted to keep the menu first rate and the food something you would want to go back to times and again.
Located in the Westside/Home Park area of Atlanta, Georgia, Marcels was named after French boxer Marcel Cerdan. Trained in Africa, he was considered by many to be the best boxer in France. Tragically he was killed in an airplane crash at the height of his career.
Ford only gets his beef from the Linz Heritage Angus Ranch. They have developed the finest purebred Black Angus which only gives them the finest meat available. There are no added hormones and every cut is taken from only the best part of the cow. No wonder they have a four-point-seven rating on the world wide web.
